Why can't I see a preview image when opening files in InDesign?

10-11  Source: Network gathering  Views:1 

I have "Always save preview images with documents" checked in File Handling, also with Save As. But I can only see the CS3 ID icon in my folders on the desktop, and when opening a file in InDesign. I'm running 10.4.11. Shouldn't I be able to see a preview image of the first page of an InDesign file?
i think those preview images means that indesign saves a lowres image of every placed image inside indd. So you can open your indd in some other computer and see all placed images even if you don´t have all the original linked hires images transferred with indd.
If you want to see your documents first page as document icon, use Bridge to browse your files. It recognizes a content of indd files and show first page as icon. .
